Signature Bazis Style – Our Innovative Architectural Design

Bazis has played an influential role in the transformation of Toronto’s landscape and skyline. It is our innovative architectural design, our signature style that has contributed to this and set us apart from other real estate developers.

 

Over the last decade, we have worked with renowned architect Rosario Varacalli to create inspired designs paying close attention to every detail, inside and out. Details that are distinctive, contemporary and classic and make a statement.

 

These innovative designs are apart of each one of our projects: The standout and luminous green glass towers of Emerald Park that punctuate the monochromatic skyline of North York. Two towers with distinctively flared tops that share a three-story podium which houses office and retail space.

A single tower, enveloped in faceted metallic ribbons that glitter against the cityscape is the distinctive 1 Yorkville. Incredibly luxurious details such as the rooftop theatre, spa and pool.

 

A unique tower made up of four cubes is perfectly juxtaposed with the design of the Royal Ontario Museum directly across from Exhibit. One of its most distinguishing features is a stunning urban outdoor oasis.

Modern beauty takes shape at Yonge and Eglinton with eCondos, the first building in Toronto to have a glass cantilevered pool lounge.

 

Crystal BLU, a statement of sophistication rises from a six-storey podium inset with awe-inspiring blue glass crystal that adds an extraordinary dimension to the city skyline.

These are some of the distinctive exterior details of our communities. Each unique residence, built with a clear vision of interior details marrying seamlessly with the exterior theme of the building. Functional living spaces with an open concept layout, each unit features luxurious interiors with signature designer finishes.

 

Some of the striking features that have become synonymous with the BAZIS signature style include high ceilings, expansive windows offering panoramic views; wrap around terraces; and European inspired kitchens with top of the line appliances.

In addition to these are the incredible amenities built-in to every one of our projects as well. Fitness galleries with yoga studios and lounges, sparkling indoor and outdoor pools, elegant entertainment rooms, rooftop gardens and beautiful lobbies.

Features and amenities such as these have all contributed to the signature BAZIS style.
